The week before there is some fun banter at the Taft Auditorium show -

Jerry starts to mess with a guy who keeps calling for Truckin and who's probably dosed to the gills: “Come on, man, come on, man, you gotta be a cop? Is that it? ‘Play Truckin… Play Truckin’… We’ll play whatever we like… Of course that’s not saying you won’t like it. You might like it too. You might like it too. It might be alright. It might be something perfectly o-kay… What about all those people that might not like Truckin’?..." Not content to leave it there, Jerry pauses and insistently adds, "Well, how about it man?”

Bobby tells the people under the balcony that, “any minute now they’re going to be dropping a whole load of live chickens on you.” Then, before they finally play Truckin, we get Phil: “Okay man, this one’s for you. This is the one you’ve been waiting to hear.”
